PRIVACY POLICY

Because your privacy is very important to us, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

We believe that people should have the freedom to choose how their digital content is shared.

Who we are

The web address for this site is https://www.trishbell.com, wherein you will find a pretty darn complete description of who we are in the “about” section. I don’t think it bears repeating here. I mean, this privacy policy page is already pretty loooong.

Also… ahem. Full transparency, folks:

Since at the present time, there’s actually just one person working on this site, I guess you can take the “we” mentioned here on this page to be sorta like the royal “we” — plural-sounding and yet singular in practicality. On the other hand, this “we” could also reference me and WordPress, depending on how you look at things. I mean, a good portion of the data-collection information provided below does come from template info provided by WordPress, since that is the platform that powers my site and they engineered a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff.

What personal data this site collects and why it gets collected:
1. Form Submissions

When visitors leave comments or submit information via the contact form or any other form on the website, the data submitted is collected, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

2. Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

(A cookie is also a moist, delicious, sugary treat! Alas, that is the not the type of cookie that you will receive when you visit the site. **sigh** Would that it were so! But please, feel free to go grab a cookie to nibble on while you read about our cookies. I recommend chocolate chip.)

We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the website, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using this website (be aware that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of cookies).

If you leave a comment on the site you may opt-in to saving your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you complete a form submission, the data submitted and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Business Transfers

If this website or substantially all of its assets were acquired, user information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of this website may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on this website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by TrishBell.com and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change our privacy policy from time to time, and at our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to this privacy policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this privacy policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
